How To Be a Perfect Mother of The Bride!

When Your daughter’s or soon to be daughter in law’s wedding is coming up, make sure to follow this guideline to be an A+ mother of the bride ! First thing to remember is that it is not YOUR wedding! Of course if she picks a hideous wedding dress you have the right to say your opinion , but when it comes to what color theme she wants .. Let her enjoy and pick her own colors! Make sure you are there to give her support, you are allowed to give opinions, just not demands ( yes there definitely is a difference.) Try and do the “less fun” wedding planning. For example searching for affordable venues, bands, caterer, photographer, making an invitation list for your guests.. etc. Once your daughter or daughter in law chooses what she wants.. Be sure to express how happy you are for her and how beautiful she is! Be supportive and don’t cause her stress! When it comes to your dress… Listen to the color she wants you to wear .. But the dress is totally up to you! Well not totally it has to be approved by her first. Make sure to pick a dress that can also be found in our showroom, and enjoy the wedding!

Special Occasion Dress Tips by Blake and Company: New York’s Premier Mother of the Bride and Special Occasion Wholesale Dress Showroom

special occasion dresses nycHave you recently been invited to a wedding?  Spring and Summer weddings are upon us and guests must decide on what to where.  When selecting a special occasion dress there are a few tips to keep in mind.  First, let’s remember the cardinal rule: Never wear a white special occasion dress to a wedding unless you are the bride.

Okay, now that we got the obvious rule out of the way, some of the other tips may be a bit more subtle.  Do you think it’s a good idea to wear a black special occasion dress to a summer wedding?  It’s not.  Be bold, don’t bother playing it safe.  Black special occasion dresses can be used for a night on the town, but be bold and instead choose a bright special occasion dress to a summer wedding.

If you really want to make a hit this season, try a long, soft, floral print special occasion dress for a chic and trendy.  Blake and Company has many different special occasion dresses on display at our New York City Wholesale Special Occasion Dress Showroom.  We are the official dress showroom of Daymor Couture, Damianou, Ideas by Barbara, SIA SIA, Scaravelli, JSS Knitwear and VM by Mori Lee.
